    Current Employee - Cmp in Wisc Dells, WI

    I have been working at Wyndham Worldwide full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    The only pros is talking to a variety of people from all over the world as well as the company parties.

    Cons

    Get everything on paper. I got "timeshared". My manager said I was going to be making 5,000 to 14,000 a month. First thought was wow, I'll do it. Reality is that you get placed in the most terrible of locations with the already established marketers get the prime locations. They play favorites, so just stand your ground. Make sure you read the handbook, its very contradictive if you you are apparently do something wrong.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop playing the favorites game and actually value you employees opinion. And learn the definition of insubordination before you fire someone for answering a question.

    Current Contractor - Senior IT Implementation Manager in Orlando, FL
    Current Contractor - Senior IT Implementation Manager in Orlando, FL

    I have been working at Wyndham Worldwide as a contractor (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great place to work at. Really busy in IT related projects, and do alot of contracted work. Not contract to hire. Some of the perks include discounts for accommodations in Wyndham properties Worldwide.

    Cons

    Treat contractors as outcast. For example: They do ice cream socials for the whole building but specifically tell contractors they are not allowed. They do the same for Thanksgiving when handing out the turkeys to everyone in the building.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There are no company values. There's a great deal of back end favors taking place and the level of corporate politics is very high. Tough to get many things done in a timely fashion do to all the red tape and political landscape.

    Current Employee - Senior Owner Specialist & Sales Manager in Las Vegas, NV

    I have been working at Wyndham Worldwide full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Helping families to stay in 5 star resorts and to go on vacations they normally wouldn't go on all the while earning a great income with full benefits!

    Cons

    Easy to get dragged down by negativity. Lots of rejection you need to move past to give each presentation an equal chance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When someone gets caught up in the negativity or into a slump, rather then a general pep talk to everyone in the morning meetings, sit down with the rep and find out what motivates them and remind them why they are there, what they are working for before they end up walking away from the job. In conclusion, implement things to increase the companies retention rate of employees such as NO DRAW for the first 30 days or increase the flat salary (draw) from $250 for reps and $500 for managers by $250 and have NO DRAW on half for the first 30 - 60 days while reps and new managers adjust to their new position/job. It took me 3 months before I was able to figure out my presentation and become comfortable with it, however i did earn over $100,000.00 my first full calendar year.

    Pros

    Good experience with the company and senior management. Company was forced to adapt to changing economic conditions, but overall handled the situation well

    Cons

    Could be difficult to navigate the corporate bureaucracy, but this was my first experience in a company of this size

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Corporate wide organizational decisions and policies don't always provide the intended results in all departments.
